up for the first anniversary and so this shows two things it's a pretty big concession by hamas to totally cancel that event which it has invested a lot of of capital in in recent months and it shows i think that on the hamas side there is a will to deescalate this situation it denied carrying out the rocket attack on television it said it was going to find the perpetrators israel nonetheless blamed hamas for carrying out the rocket attacks so it's a signal from the from the hamas side of the equation that they're looking for a way out of a further escalation and i think there has been a similar signal coming from israeli military which is told the israeli media today that it believes that this might have been a mistaken launch in some way whether that means some kind of technical malfunction or whether it means a low level group within hamas firing off without the orders well the sanction of
more senior members both sides look to be giving each other potential way out of an escalating crisis and death at the same time we understand that there is a was at least an egyptian delegation in the guards there we understand the gate trying to negotiate at least a more a more durable truth's between the sides. that's right this is a that it's been going on for some months now the egyptians have been very involved in trying to negotiate a long term truce between the israelis and hamas with various other actors involved as well at various times obviously there's qatari money coming in to gaza at the moment the united nations is also trying to to see what it can do to facilitate circumstances for such a deal in the run up to the israeli election though those efforts seem to be. not progressing at any great pace as they haven't been as to be said even preceding the
election being called in december that election is due on april the ninth those egyptian delegate that that gypsy delegation was in gaza yesterday at the time of the launch how much so that it was talking to this delegation of the time of the launch so why would they want to launch at that time it was also a time when there had been significant protests inside gaza against hamas over the few minutes aaron situation and the various price rises that have been happening in recent days and weeks and so there is a very difficult situation inside gaza there's some indication of hamas isn't getting what it wants out of these negotiations that led some to suggest that perhaps this was a deliberate attempt to try to turn the temperature up again but if it was certainly they're doing their best to turn it back down now and with the israeli elections coming up as well it seems to be little appetite for a major conflagration here on the israeli side as well hairy for st live in the
israel gaza border area. since becoming a dad is there a high profile matter leaves new york and fearing a return to the days of mob violence. my name is some people say that my feeling. any program that they're not real but if i think they're real then they are real don't you think south america was designed to be the world's most advanced autonomous android which is one of the more advanced robots in the world can or about feel that's a philosophical question it's not a lot of but you do socially connect on a subconscious level we are creating this new kind of entity. all knowledge is iraq . there is grown in a very short time to be a trusted news source wherever you are in the world he really want to know what's going on there and to find out very quickly we're not looking for some nations
prism. we are probably international everybody will learn something watching our coverage. be showing that we can be the best international news and most trusted source of stories that people actually can't find elsewhere and that's going to continue. the ultranationalist marks connected with one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis as we doe as illegally maigret joining with the military to impose that deadly political agenda we have to flow to our nation what has happened to the engine that's one of the biggest stains on the country as a whole. but they're not religious this is the politics me and an unholy alliance on al-jazeera. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much employed in contribution to a story as we cover this region better than anyone else would be foolish is you
know it's very challenging we believe particularly because you have a lot of people that are deployed on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. right turns take a look at the top stories here it is there again at least forty nine people have been killed another forty year in hospital in new zealand after two mosques were targeted in christ church one man's been charged with murder police are questioning three of us it's the worst mass shooting ever in using. the prime minister just
in the ardennes says it's one of the darkest days in the country's history she added her country has been targeted by a terrorist attack because it is a diverse nation that welcomes migrants. and weekly protests along the girls the israeli fence area has been postponed hours after israeli airstrikes hit the besieged gaza strip earlier rockets launched from gaza fell close to television. thousands of protesters are gathering in the algerian capital and that's despite the new prime minister promising a new government which will be open to all neutered dean badly addressed the nation on thursday he said he was responding to the demands of protesters by. creating a government involving young people he said it would be in place by next week having caused four weeks of rallies to continue calling for president bush of
leader to step down a senior member of the ruling f.l.n. party meanwhile has said the hooter ficca is now history. let's wait now to dalia ghanem is an algerian political analyst and resident scholar at carnegie middle east center she's in beirut the lebanese capital thanks for joining us so the the protest movement then seems to have achieved quite a lot insofar as that of liquor is off the scene is out of the equation what more do they want what you know i've been marching with the a jury and on march first and to with this student on february twenty sixth and back in there and their demand where clear and focused it was no to the fifth term but unfortunately the government and the regime has been too slow to answer and today the answer comes too late. by then by that time that a jury and demand broaden and expanded and today they not only want no fifth
term for president would fight it out but they don't want his brothers and his clan they don't want this entire government and they don't want the rejean and actually . the declaration of. but also the brahimi and i'm tandem mamma are not going to appease algerians by the locals it is they are exasperating their frustration rank their desire for change so it sounds very much as though the people who are prepared to protest and continue protesting they want a complete overhaul of algeria in politics my question is are they prepared to engage in a process of dialogue which the newly appointed prime minister offered just yesterday. we are not sure about that but at this stage of the protesters seems not to be willing to take or to in gauge wind with. it in with
anyone coming from this government as a matter of fact that brahimi personalities such as that but i hate it but also and then the mamma we're very popular and till they engage with this government so at this stage i don't think it is going to do with burke i think what will work is real actions but infortunately be the most arjun's of maneuvering of the redeem us are tightening and you know tightening day after day and what constitutes real action i'm still a bit unclear if the movement for change wants what it considers a substantial change how does it hope that that will be achieved and is it a matter of overthrowing i mean the alternative to dialogue is overthrowing the government the same place now. well unfortunately we are witnessing the real and
deep political crisis at the crisis of legitimacy in algeria but the problem is with the very nature of the region that obscurity for instance of good flipper presenting himself or this term this fight is illness has to be find within the nature of this regime it is a very complex regime and over there is composed by different authors and circles of power and it seems that this region with all these circles composed by a felon leaders but also military real bidders and business tycoons if it is not capable of finding a consensual candidate as it used to be and this is what led to the crisis dollar ganim thank you very much indeed really interesting to talk to you. china's economic slowdown and the trade war with the u.s. top the agenda of legislators gathered in beijing they endorsed a foreign investment law aimed at appeasing the concerns of trading partners in

. in the world over is one of europe's poorest and most troubles nations and many people here think they know why. some blame a billion dollar fraud which bankrupted the country others point to the post savior trip public's complex relations with east and west. but almost everyone even the president seems to agree on one thing that it's impossible to disentangle moldova's problems from the power and influence wielded by one man. flood plain old news otherwise known as the puppet master. model is
a question of us and those who look out of the scenes to to give us. a little something putting in the lead at a rate me me but guess whether slugger that is for me tomorrow or the ball at the nearly getting. the inexplicably gang zone in the life of blowhole the leader of moldova's democratic party a partner in the governing coalition of the stuff of spy fiction. huge wealth and attempted assassination and accusations of blackmail and bank fraud we feature film that you won there. in the film look at make it the book it was because i did say was born. bored in twenty sixteen from becoming prime minister because of corruption allegations plotnick nevertheless took control of the poem and pushing through a new electoral system that many ordinary mood david's feared would guarantee his grip on the country. everybody knows that the only place where this isn't had taken
place is the uk is delf a cell for mr putnam. so when last month's election resulted in a hung parliament with his forty coming third what did it mean for the republic and the mark of early and figure who exercises so much influence we went to find it. sandwiched between rumania and ukraine moldova is one of europe's least known countries once it was the richest of the soviet republics for decades the breadbasket of the us i saw. but following the collapse of the soviet union it has fallen on hard times. in one nine hundred ninety two at better civil war saw a tiny sliver of land break away from moldova to form the new republic of transnistria almost five thousand people lost their lives in the conflict three
thousand are wounded many made homeless. today transnistria is recognized and really by russia it's a time capsule of what life was like in the glory days of the savior. it's where russia's myself fourteenth only is based just forty minutes from the mold live in the capital case nine. troops in a frozen conflict that could heat up any second. told by both the e.u. and the kremlin and the geopolitical took of war moldova's fragile democracy is under attack that's why we have this phenomenon of stoke captcha because of geopolitical cautious because of geopolitical or he has between america and russia however while mr new guy is saying i'm staying here in power and he is laughing.
his detractors accusing the sinister connections of being the man behind the curtain who controls everything that moves in the country. over of these are rather gay chanst blowhole new critiquing the end of the image he rejects his critics refused to let up. blood new to the men who captured the the. state institution was starting from the government to palm and persecute orpheus national bank the center of combating corruption and he is using the state for his own interest. who very direct links have never been proven his opponents say that particular question dreaming about whether they are god was tied to one of motives most notorious financial scams. in the winter of twenty fourteen fraudulent claims amounting to ever a billion dollars were made from three major move the banks during the three day period the country's national bank was forced to cover the loss.
for light from a crime for which and the a handful of mind of figures were held responsible continues to impoverish the country. for moldova in g.d.p. it's twelve percent and the problem is that this many have been put on the shoulders of taxpayers so we have to return the slimy excellent double malt jewelry and twenty five years many people are having to sell their belongings in order to get by. the white so it's a good number said it was sure. the image that the basics first and you heard budget commandos were good but where does one of that show which is a. legislation passed by parliament last year made it practically impossible to recover the stolen money. making these the draft laws that in fact it has been

it was perhaps then unsurprising in april twenty seventh teen when seventeen people were detained in accused of plotting to assassinate the only dog. bunny and weapons were seized including grenade launchers and kalashnikovs but his opponents say it was all the stunts to gain sympathy for the deeply unpopular only call. the perpetrators conveniently photographed themselves drawing a plan of attack over a map of the global business center nick has his office. with the political levy only. people who plan on the summation and being you know in front of become your target in the face is that they come out at the shows and they are playing some kind of mr solution i'm absolutely sure that is a fake assassination. of the few surely you know what good night is boring
invented by by human he he is people. this as a nation claim came a split whole make a just him bald on a charm offensive. blah blah what you call the good you got him through the seeping through but again. seeking to present himself as a kind the father figure to the nation something. i said there was a good idea what you were as a government out there could do it with a little. more importantly he wanted to be seen as a true patriot capable of standing up to russia. it tries to sell to the west and they do you that even though he's not a god now in the moment he's the only one who can stop russian tanks not entering in the region. they teased her closer not. hold news media interests gave wall to wall coverage to the alleged assassination
but after some months others chose to focus on dramatic developments from an earlier murder attempt in london twenty twelve. the top gate was a russian banker goban stoff a business rival of blog mc he was shot four times by a professional hit man. what crop the headlines was that the gunman told the proctor serving time in the remaining prison for another crime which is this moment to admit to the attack on google stuff he then alleged that it is being carried out at the behest of the his hands or in blood up to the elbow. should not partially she come under our feet. so.
plus nuke dismissed crocus accusation and denied any involvement in the crime but the story was given time by janelle t.v. one of the few moldavian media outlets the oligarchs control it was a rare demonstration of independence many independent journalists we spoke to complained about harassment prompting some to leave the country. and they are immortal. although it. is only well thought of seersucker on one occasion celeb you have chased after his pursuers need your body but most of them drove off in a car leaving warm behind the woman because of all of us despite this individual being identified no police investigation was carried out and use of that i thought
it marks a moment for mark think our daughter in law is not like that was. there with you know what there were you know each other by the more but the more it was allowed to . sue was more about the list but still the list of little sleep. search episodes are not isolated. when the high profile of the investigative journalist natalia murari published an open letter to the whole nuke containing the following sentences you will never become the one you always wanted to be the legitimate leader of moldova in the shadows yes surreptitiously yes but never the just mutiny she claims she received threats of blackmail with an intimate tape from the plotnick associate. it was video made in my apartment which i was renting it was my apartment so it was not mean a hotel in the car it was my home so they got into my home.

all right there are story i did remember to go to mary but what a good lawyer. from in the lead in the bush family up us they brought us the almost if you don't know what little. there were more political shenanigans just days before the vote when the central electoral commission threatens to burn the socialists on the basis that president done himself a socialist was supporting the party which is head of state he should refrain from printing yet more protests in the event the socialists were not excluded which according to some of ludlow hold makes critics was surely no accident. junior partner of plot would convey a playing different roles block would know is presenting himself as believe the of
proof pm part that. is playing the role of anti european profession but the kind of threat to the european future of moldova which is used by people who are in his discussions with the west i think that both interested in one being will go in the grey area where they can design the also the game think intended the law as they can do with anyone. when the election results came through accu the socialists and to hold next democrats each took between twenty five and thirty percent resulting in a hung parliament of a hundred and one seats duns party took thirty five the democrats the city leaving twenty six but i came on the face of it with no clear winner there was a chance for change but often isn't is in short supply and place to the. maneuvering is something dave his most powerful politician excels at nogent but the

a camera mounted on his helmet here but. what i would not talk we hear looking a lot of. it is started shooting and the people of the. issues and the shots and. that's a good is how do you go one by one if. some people that the gunman live streamed his attack on facebook as he indiscriminately opened fire on more than two hundred worshippers i was hearing there to a shooting after a shooting of the shooting it went on. six minute or more in. could hear screaming and the crying in. some people you know dropped dead shortly after that shooting there was a similar attack on worshipers that lynwood mosque about ten minutes away police have arrested a number of suspect think looting an australian born man new zealand's prime
minister said they weren't on any security watch list and said new zealand had been the target of what she described as a terrorist attack because it was a diverse nation that welcomed migrants we new zealand. we were not a tag it because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. we were not chosen for the sake of violence because we can darn rices them because we're an on clay for extremism. we were chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things australia's prime minister is also a pulled and shocked we stand here and condemn absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist right wing violent terrorist. that is typed in the law of stalin the laws in a vicious murder suspect. that is climbed so many new zealand's
police have a groom doubt the possibility of most suspects being at launch and a warning muslims to stay away from mosques nation wind we have staff around the country ensuring. that every one does keep safe and that includes. the fairness and special tactics groups right across the country being very vigilant and having a presence around the wall of their mosques to ensure nothing the kids the national threat level has been raised from low to high as police politicians and the public come to terms with the worst and most shocking attack they've ever experienced victoria gate and be al jazeera. now we can speak to reporter kate king who's joining us via skype from christchurch it sierra leone's of the morning and now kate but this is been the worst day in the city's if not in the country's
history what is that what is a sense of cautious this morning. well as you said in our unites with these we al is also annoying and most people in christchurch are of late the kootenay is just outside behind me here and i was outside the just a short time ago the fees really nolen all the straits at the moment sixtieth so they threw money at the foot as it were a couple of people who told me they couldn't sleep and cannot support us tonight some lawas they said it was just a sign of respect for the people who had died at the our normal which is just a couple of hundred metres away from the cordon here near where i am they told me that they feel unsafe in christchurch at the moment there's been a lot of dissension in christchurch in recent years at the hands of mother nature but nothing like this nothing done by attack is to members of the public in
christchurch when i arrived at the people there were very somber they were very much talking quietly in small groups not playing on the line down everyone was talking all the shooting as the prime minister and many others have to rise as one of you feel as. saying it's an unprecedented in the extraordinary act of violence from things that new zealand is very much not use to heading in that country and furthermore i mean new zealand is generally considered to be a very peaceful place you don't have a heavy security presence in general on the streets that's all changed. indeed that has changed and the police commission if you used to results possible in the can't agree region here at the moment they are travelling in place from other parts of the country to come to cannes to break the news no defense force has also been deployed now that most of also being asked to carry arms which is
something that you don't see on the streets here in new zealand and it has seen other situations throughout the country and. to know the bombs what it was were using to. and identify packages in general and that turned out to just be that next containing construction equipment there was also a situation unfolding in the navy and earlier this evening at least you get to update us on net that they were targeting a prophecy down there and evacuating resistance nearby putting them at an accommodation where the lights were unsure how in connection that probably is the attack that happened here in christchurch but security has been stepped up with the alerts here in new zealand armed lower. and kate as we've already said new zealand is generally a very peaceful place people consider themselves to be very liberal very tolerant
has there been anything like this any of these kinds of hateful crimes against people of different creeds of different colors of different races. all. so i want to happen very often in new zealand and so as you say these illnesses do pride themselves on being an inclusive society i was saying that it's the men's and that makes up a very small proportion of people here in new zealand the last stance is that recounted it was back in twenty so saying in that time just the one sixteenth of people in new zealand says that they identified as being muslim but in new zealand we have a large indigenous population that is very much included in schools of when thinking of policies in new zealand as well as just only everyday straights so well
you could say that people here in question. that is conservative and they are very much like the race of new zealand and that they have strong morals and values which relates to being inclusive talking to one another on the straight messenger that everyone's not just someone and sort of as a friend now they're one of those communities that is the biggest cities around three hundred three hundred fifty thousand people here in christchurch and for a lot of people who know a lot of people in the city and i would say that most people here what is being affected by this today whether or not i know someone who was at one of them all at the time you have someone who would seem to those who were injured on the street outside the mosque but also rules and businesses we spent a lot down in the south knows that a lot of the civil our people were actually allowed to go harm and make tional that in the one we're on but this isn't the sort of thing then you feel as is you so it
will come and shot and indeed as i see the people that i've spoken to who do say that i am not feeling comfortable with this attack that this is something that you feel is identify was that naive they didn't think that this. attack would even happen you know now sure kate king thank you very much for talking to us live from christchurch new zealand. thank you now there were several people from countries like bangladesh indonesia afghanistan and malaysia who were at the mosque at the time of the attack leaders from muslim majority countries like pakistan indonesia in turkey they have condemned the killings in turkey itself thousands of people took to the streets to protest against the killings the turkish president tired of on links the attacks to what he called the rise of islamophobia worldwide he urged western countries to take immediate action ok let's speak now to.
director of policy and communication at minority rights group internationally joins us live from london col what is the situation generally for people of a minority race or creed to give you see then we think that it's very tolerant it's very accepting but what's the reality for people of a different a different hue. if i may begin by expressing my profound condolences first of all for those who have lost loved ones this morning and also my concern for those wounded as well as solidarity with the muslim minority and new zealand as a whole because this incident strikes at the very heart of what new zealand represents as a democratic society my understand.
